When your live tree is past its fragrant, sparkly prime, give it a new sense of purpose through the City of Suwanee’s “treecycling” campaign, which is part of Keep Georgia Beautiful’s annual ‘Bring One for the Chipper’ program.

Area residents may drop off their Christmas trees at Sims Lake Park, located at 4600 Suwanee Dam Road, from December 26 through January 5. Decorations, lights and stands should be removed from all trees prior to donating. Last year, mulch from nearly 1,200 former Christmas trees was spread in Suwanee parks.

Volunteers will be available to assist with unloading, as well as handing out seedlings (while supplies last) from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, January 4, 2020.

Adult and teen volunteers are needed to assist January 4. To volunteer, contact Nicole Schnepper at or 770-945-8996.
